An Open Letter to Newt Gingrich
Following recent comments made by Newt Gingrich, in which the former House Speaker accused a "cultural elite" of "trying to create a secularized America," SCA executive director Sean Faircoth last week penned an open letter to Gingrich in the Huffington Post, explaining why America's government is, and always has been, secular:
Secular Americans do not want to deprive you of your constitutional right to worship whatever religion you choose. We simply want to make sure that your religious views do not tread on anyone else's -- and we know that the best tool for preserving religious freedom for everyone, believers and nonbelievers alike, is secular government.
If you want to prove yourself worthy of our nation's highest office, it would very wise for you to not only acknowledge America's rich secular heritage -- but affirm our historic and constitutional responsibility to defend it.
